Dell Mini 9, 1GB RAM, 8GB SSD
, XP home.
I have been keeping a close eye on the disc space usage since purchasing this new Mini 9 a few weeks ago. I calculate the space by comparing the Used/Free Space figures (from C Properties) with the Size On Disk for each folder. When the machine was first configured, there was about 75Mb "missing" but this has risen steadily ever since and is now 350Mb. Considering that I only have 400Mb in Documents and Settings (the rest is on a SDHC card), this loss is now significant.
I have hibernation turned-off, page file set to 500Mb minimum, and use CCleaner daily. The size of the DELL, drivers, i386, Program files, and Windows folders have all been virtually static over this period. I have deleted all but the most recent system restore points. I run Avira antivirus and all programs (and XP) are patched up-to-date.
Does anyone have any idea where this SSD
space is going, and how I can get it back?
